What does EDR stand for?

I’m embarrassed to ask the question but so far I haven’t found anyone who can answer it. What do the letters EDR actually stand for? :o

The bit that probably throws off your google searching is that its only 2 words rather than 3.

VEX Educational Robotics (EDR)

Thanks. That’s makes perfect sense. In ways only an engineer would dream up. :slight_smile:

Does this mean there is a NEdR version, too?

Vex Non-EDucational Robotics??? :smiley:

This would make the most sense. It sounds like a lot of fun. Learning is harddddddddd.

I was originally thinking it was educational design robotics but grammatically that is horrible

Hi Guys,
The “EDR” in VEX EDR doesn’t stand for anything. It is just a trade-name similar to Kleenex or Velcro, or VEX. :slight_smile:

That’s hilarious!

Ut-oh… I sense an impromptu unofficial naming contest about to begin :)…

Let’s see…

Erudite… Edifying… Electrifying… Einsteinificating… uh… um… :rolleyes:

My guess is that they ran into trademark issues with EDR. :wink:
